punching in a dream

Imagehello + welcome back (:
today’s title is inspired by a great song by the band The Naked & Famous to whom i got to see live about a year ago. they’re great pretty cool live, dancing & doing crazy stuff while they sing with really cool lighting + etc. anyways, for todays post i just want to take the time to quickly thank my good friend emily for being so kind to take these pictures for me! she does cute little rant videos on youtube, so go check her out at http://www.youtube.com/user/emiliu74 (:

there’s something about this outfit that just seemed so perfect for a place that contrasted it with beautiful green scenery from nature. i loved shooting inside this beautifully designed hidden pathway among these trees. the only thing i didn’t like about it were the fact that bugs could be anywhere and there were quite a few spider webs that i spied 😛 other then that, it was really fun to wear my very neutral toned outfit through the “trees”


 so here’s my modeling attempt! i feel so silly when i take pictures where i’m actually posing, but these came out better then i expected, and hopefully in due time i will become more natural when it comes to my posing, that way the quality of photos will become even better (: if you have any tips or pointers, please please please let me know! 😀


if you go check out Emily’s youtube, you’ll see why i can’t help but to be smiling in this picture! she is so cute and playful i couldn’t help but to show some teeth (; in this picture i look so young, but i love it because me and Emily have known each other since we were like babies! and so its very nostalgic to spend time with her ❤


i’m so dedicated to blogging, i got wet for you guys (; (LOL bad joke?)
